Why govt can’t restore 4G internet service


Internet means interconnected network to link devices worldwide. It is a network of networks that consists of private, public, academic, business, and government networks of local to global scope, linked by a broad array of electronic, wireless, and optical networking technologies. Now internet is the backbone of our society. Internet is the worldwide network which we can use everywhere in the world. Our routine is initiated by the internet. It is the first thing in the morning we do to see our notifications and emails.
The Internet has made human life so much easier, now the biggest and toughest tasks are done in minutes. No matter it is a simple email, pizza order, shopping or money transfer or shopping on the internet it is so is affordable, convenient and time saving. The use of flipkart.com, alibaba.com, amazon.com, paytm.com, snapdeal.com, etc. for online shopping is common. That’s how the internet is affecting our shopping habits in daily life. And all this process is called e-Commerce that has changed business and now it’s an important part of our life much easier by the use of the internet.
This is the 21st century in which everything relies on internet which is necessary and useful for today’s world. Positive use of internet makes our lives easy and simple. The internet provides us useful data, information, and knowledge for personal, social and economic development and it is up to us to utilize our time on the worldwide web in a productive manner.
The internet is a revolution in information technology. We can promote our business through internet. From the internet, we provide the most up-to-date information. The internet in education is providing new opportunities for both students and educators alike.
As we all know before a couple of months when Article 370 was abrogated, then internet was snapped on the night of August. Everybody got shocked because we did not know that Article 370 has been abrogated. Everything got finished like businesses, companies, industries, education etc. Some companies wind up there business because they don’t have the internet facility. For the last eight months, we have been living without 4G internet service. When Article 370 was abrogated, even our phones were also blocked.
Why other countries are most well developed? The other countries are most developed because of their hard work. They are busy with establishing 5G services and in Kashmir they have snapped the 4G internet service and still government is not restoring it. Why government can’t understand that internet is not only about social networking sites and games let them understand it is beyond that and they need to come in terms with this hard fact. We all rely on internet. All schools, colleges and universities are closed because of COVID-19.
Students already lost their precious time of their academic session and future is not promoting as well. How can they learn and how can they get knowledge without internet and if students learn and study at their homes and if they have doubt on anything who can guide them? How can they attend online classes with 2G internet service? Do we have no right to use internet?
Whenever they hear something wrong, they close the net first. Is it our fault? No doubt some people spread wrong information. Why government providing opportunity to fake news and why are we people required to believe that information.
Governments around the world find it hard to stop wrong and problematic information from being disseminated. They have to take action against it. Shutting down the internet is not the solution. Nothing is available with the 2G service. So I would request to government to take necessary steps to ensure that Kashmiris get their right to have a good quality internet service.
